Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
Pierre Chevillard’s “beautifully located cliff top restaurant enjoys lovely views over Bournemouth and Poole Bay, the Isle of Wight and the Needles” (“especially from the garden terrace”), and it serves “sublime local seafood with typically Gallic flair!” (“Lovely accommodation also”.)
With a “great location on the clifftop”, this “rather sophisticated” venue offers “first-rate” (if rather “pricey”) seafood dishes by chef Pierre Chevillard; it’s especially nice when you can “sit outside, overlooking the Solent”.
Not only “spectacular views across the Solent” make this “consistently good” cliff-top spot a major hit with reporters (especially those who dine al fresco); head chef Pierre Chevillard is “simply superb with fish”, and prices are relatively “affordable” too; a downside? – the interior is too ’80s for some tastes.
